Abstract: His research interests lie primarily in two interconnected areas of plant biology: plant regenerative biology and plant stress biology. Fascinated by the extraordinary capabilities of plant roots to generate various types of lateral organs (such as lateral roots, nodules, root sprouts and tubers) and to survival from unfavourable and often damaging environmental conditions (such as cold, drought and salinity), he aimed to learn from the roots how plants originate, develop, cope with and recover from environmental stresses.
